Maria Peña

I have 25 year of experience in municipal government working in grant management, project management, budgeting, auditing, reporting, records retention and land use.

Over 25 years of progressively responsible experience in public administration, with 20 years combined in finance and clerking. The last 5 years of my tenure was as the City Administrator where I was responsible for oversight of all city departments and operation. I then went to work for the Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce as the lead Bilingual Small Business Advisor to provide leadership and direction to a team of Small Business Advisors to provide resources, operational guidance, and technical assistance on the various aspects of operating a small business with a focus on Spanish speaking business owners.
